  A                              Ab* Ab*
  Styrofoam cup of mud in my good hand,
  A
  Disembodied voice of God in the trash can
  E
  Eyes in the ashes, feeling for the future
  E
  Sleeping through the stakeout, researching the rumor.

  A                                Ab* Ab*
  A mile, a motor, a mattress, a memory
  A
  First you were embarassed, but how could you not be,
  E                                  Eb Eb
  Tangled in teenage, her mom at the movies,
  E
  Your voice ran out out of words,
                      C#*    F# F#  B A B A
  It was awkward and holy.

  A
  Gospel in your belly, the ache a little lower,
  A
  Back into the breach, you spoke as it's owner.
  E
  A syndicated sermon you sang from the rafters
  E
  An Anchor in you pocket, holding down the laughter.

  A
  Tearing up your mind, your lust and your ego,
  A
  A screenshot reminder to speed your libido,
  E
  The parish grows to jelly, blissful and wasted,
  E                                                 C#*  F#F# B A B A
  Your Vishnu eye slips open, them pictures of you naked

  You're complicating your worst mixed message,
     D                     A
  You built then burned a bridge.

  Then scattered all your crumbs at the cliff,

  She wants me, she'll swim for it.

  A
  Brother, can you spare your alms or your arrows?
  A
  Thunder clap's arising, I think that I should go
  E
  Home to the basement back on Jumel Street
  E
  1996 and your waiting there to tell me,
  A
  I didn't die, you dreamt it, you dreamt it,
  A
  I'm as alive as your best good intentions.
  E
  Sorry that I tricked you, you had to focus
  E                                      C#*     F#F# B A B A
  Put yourself together, clear out the garbage.

  But for all that effort,
       A
  The slow burned struggle,
  D
  I forgot where you live.
